The Drums - I Can't Pretend (video)

The best track off of The Drums latest record, Encyclopedia, got a clip back in October, but somehow I missed it (Oops!). As a duo, The Drums have given themselves more space to expand their ideas and sonic conceptions. Encyclpoedia is a far reaching album, with I Can't Pretend as its pinnacle Pop achievement. Its a track thats up there with some of their best, and therefore gets one of their best videos. The boys are shot in technicolor environments (aquariums, summery backyards, the old railroad tracks) where they meander about, with a chic complacency. Nothing really happens and yet you can't look away. Fish are always fun! And so are bubbles! Check it all out right here:
